After think this code again, ecx and ebx in sub-leaf CPUID.f.1 actually
contains the number of rmid and monitoring scale. The two variables are
always valid if any of L3 occupancy, MBM total, and MBM local monitoring
features is supported. So there is no need to check the features to get
the info.

But seems this patch is not needed according to Thomas?

Should I do the following changes in the next version of patch set?

1. Remove patch #1
2. Change patch #2 to the patch in https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/6/16/274
3. Keep patch #3

Please advice.

Thanks.
